Weather advisory over & back to winter. Trails are covered with layer of thin ice with a little new SNOW on top. More SNOW later this morning. Maybe an inch. So the trails are icy & slippery. If you are riding slow down. The photo on the right shows snow on the ground. So the trails are not closing. The red circle area shows a small section of Trail 10E which is snow covered. Just too slippery to walk out there.
Temps for the upcoming week are forecast for the mid 20’s to low 30’s during the day. Single digits to around 10 at night. Thursday SNOW in the forecast. No totals yet. Looking into the future forecast is for temps to stay in the teens to mid 20’s during the day far into the future. With single digit above & below zero at night. Snow off & on
Groomer Tracking Systems (GTS) shows groomer/s did go out last night. From the Groomer Barn across from Derby Track they headed north on 10/13 all the way to the connect with the Conover trails. Turned around to head back south. Left (east) on Trail 3 aka Manske Swamp & grooming Trail 17N to Trail 1. Turning around & headed back to the Groomer Barn on Trail 17.
To see where these trails are pick up a map or use the MapIt Vilas app or GTS app.
The Clubs of Vilas County work very hard to secure easements from private landowners & folks we are losing many due to off trail riding. So PLEASE NO OFF TRAIL RIDING.
Catfish & Eagle lake trails marked & OPEN. Stay by the orange reflective barrels. Surface slush with the sun is possible. DO NOT think the entire lake is safe. Several sleds have gone in the water this season far from the barrels.
Please KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE! It’s not over yet!
See ya on the Trails!
